Wishing I joined Pixelator earlier...

on: March 18, 2007, 07:36:02 am

Iunno. I liked the challenge, so I did something. 14 col.

Now that I made it, I notice that I could have added lighting effects where the lightning meets the cloud...

Indeed. That's wonderfully done.

Indeed, the moon by itself is very well done.. As part of the picture, I wonder if it doesn't have too much contrast though..
It's only after reading your comment CAG that I saw the "cloud".. For me it looked more like a bloby solid stuff than a vaporous gazeous thing...
I think it's because of the shading... it looks like it got some specular/shining on it (with the blue reflection of the moon ) and shouldn't have imho.
the lightnings could have more "branches" too maybe?
the BG looks good to me (i'm no pro though) ,stars AA etc..  :y:

Instead of the moon being too contrasting, and punishing it for standing out, bring the clouds to its level here... Right now they look like... well, rocks. I'd try to make the inndividual little spheres less individual, dither them into each other, and then ultimately dither them into the sky more, so they have that fluffly flowy feel to them, rather than solid.

So I made an edit.

Yeah, I wasn't so happy about the cloud too, so I was trying to get to (GAH!) look right. :lol:
Thanks for the C&C as of so far. :y:

Hey CAG, sup, been a while.

The edit looks good, but I thing you could still make the radius of light emanating from the lightning bigger.

Hey Syn, wassup!  ;D



lol, ANOTHER edit. I tried making the lightning lighting radius larger, but I didn't like the way that turned out. I did push the moon back some, though. It's starting to grow on me :D

I'm digging the hatching on the clouds... Mixed feelings about the red though.
for great justice

 That's tight, man. I liked how the brown clouds are dithered. The star effects there were pretty cool.
